Ambience at the Romantik B&B The Verhaegen
One could also call Ghent "the Paris of Flanders". With the "Light Walk" the city more than lives up to its romantic reputation. In the evening, the city is bathed in a magical atmosphere thanks to its unique lighting concept.
Ghent's lighting concept has won several awards. After dark, the sights and cultural heritage sites of the city of art are illuminated in an attractive way. The "Light Walk" is a two-hour walk through the city center of Ghent. Start your walk before midnight, because after that the functional lighting is switched on again.
The numerous art museums in the city invite you to (re)discover old masters and new young talents. The afternoon is best spent at the Patershol. In this medieval quarter in the shadow of Gravensteen Castle you will find excellent restaurants and top gastronomic addresses.
At the Koren- en Graslei you can embark on an exploratory boat trip through the city center. The guide will tell you all about the origins of the city at the confluence of the Lys and Scheldt rivers.
On Sundays the city is very quiet. The inhabitants of Ghent visit the nature parks on the outskirts of the city or stroll through one of the ten (!) Sunday markets. Here you will find everything from organic products at Maria Hendrikaplein Market to pets at Oude Beestenmarkt. At the Kouter you can delight your loved ones with a bouquet of flowers. And why not try an oyster at the champagne bar?
Tip: Buy a CityCard. The card is valid for 48 or 72 hours and offers access to all top attractions, monuments, museums, a boat trip, public transport, use of the water streetcar and you can rent a bicycle for one day free of charge.
